Marriott International has announced a deal to bring the first Westin all-inclusive resort to South America, with the opening of the Westin Porto de Galinhas. Following an extensive renovation, the hotel is set for a September opening.

Located on one of the most famous beaches in northeastern Brazil and minutes from the tourist center of Porto de Galinhas, the property features 128 rooms and 36 suites, some of which will include private decks and Jacuzzis.

Amenities also include five pools treated with UV technology, an exclusive luxury spa, F&B offerings and a program of daily activities.

Marriott launched its all-inclusive platform in 2019 across eight of its 30 global brands. “After introducing Marriott’s all-inclusive platform in August 2019, we are excited to see its expansion from Mexico and the Caribbean into Central America and now South America,” said Laurent de Kousemaeker, chief development officer, Caribbean and Latin America for Marriott International.
